Violin & Piano Lessons with Alexandra Gorski
Russian-American violinist Alexandra Gorski began her study of the instrument aged 4, under the tutelage of her mother, Ludmila Tsyganova. Within a few years, she began her performance career, annually winning the American Fine Arts Festival; leading a series of solo recitals in such prominent venues as New York’s Carnegie Hall, Steinway Hall, Weil Recital Hall, and The German Cultural Centre. Alexandra made her solo-orchestral debut in 2012, after attending the Klaipeda International Music Festival and winning the concerto competition, and a few months later, performing Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto at Boston’s Jordan Hall. An avid admirer of contemporary music, Alexandra has premiered the works of several astounding composers at numerous Contemporary music seminars, including Robert Sirota, Paul Patterson, and Marti Epstein. She enjoyed regular lessons from such prominent teachers as Yuri Mazurkevich, Dr. Ayke Augus, and Joseph Silverstein. A keen orchestral player since a very young age, Alexandra’s pursuits have led her to complete 6 international tours, and has performed alongside or under the baton of Frederico Cortese, Sir Mark Elder, Yo-Yo Ma, Marin Alsop, Semyon Bychkov, James Newton Howard and many others.
Moving to London the fall of 2013, Alexandra began her undergraduate degree at the Royal Academy of Music under Professor Philippe Honoré. Throughout her course, Alexandra performed regularly with the Academy Symphony, and enjoyed playing with her chamber group the Euterpe Quartet, who won second place in the Delius Prize in 2016. Later that summer, she and other members of the Euterpe completed a residency in Mallorca, Spain. She was welcomed into the Academy’s elite string ensemble, The Academy Soloists, to perform Schubert and Tchaikovsky in Wigmore Hall the spring of her final year. Since graduating with an Honours degree, Alexandra completed her Master’s degree with Professor Honoré at the Academy and became a session player at The Abbey Road Institute, enjoying regular performances and gigging around London, festival appearances, as well as her own dedicated studio of young musicians.
